I am from a bedroom

from pillow cases and bed sheets

I am from the sunshine

It tasted sweet

I am from the pine tree

the pine leaves

Some brown and some green


I’m from the bags of lays potato chips and Saturday morning cartoons

from Todzae and cousin Polo too

I’m from the constant heated debates

and often arriving late

from I love you’s

and the where you going to.

I’m from the baptist church,

and watching as my family ride in a herse


I’m from South Carolina

Fried Chicken, and Collard Greens

From the the birthday licks Lorenzo got when he turned 13.


Finlay park is where stood

I am from South Carolina not to far from the hood.
